"Their sound takes shape as some sort of groove-based kaleidoscope, the fluency with which they change keys, time signature, and tone was reminiscent of some sort of musical display of acrobatics."

"Fair warning, the riffs on offer a sure to melt your face. The guitar tones on offer divide, conquer and separate the weak from the unworthy. A collision of power rides throughout the abrasive track, though without it becoming overbearing, which is the real magic. The heavy dread from the dark guitars and pummelling drums only breeds deep melodic joy."

"The band clearly likes to tease and with terrific self-confidence in their undoubted abilities the approach does create a lively anxiousness within their music."

"...the “oddly timed stoner jazz rock with a dash of goth” (as their Facebook page so perfectly describes them) trio have made a name for themselves with a sound unlike any other – numbing hooks tied with groovy basslines, jam-worthy riffs and a voice so goddamn powerful the US are using it to overthrow Russia."

Read what CoolTry says about us.
"Listening to this album make me feel strange. Grungy and primal in some places, tickling the blood as it goes in, tracing through the veins.
Equally as anxiety-inducing as it is relieving, the mixture of results is a ultra satisfying wave rolling out and over the listener. Especially in the beginning.
There’s no room to move when the listener doesn’t know what’s coming next, paralysis invades the system like a lucid dream, wanting to move but having only the inside of ones head to stretch out in.
No need to fight it, there is no harm in sinking into the almost unnatural feels generated by this music. Touch the musical space as it begins to expand and assimilate. Sink into I, there’s more room in here than it seems." (SP- Live Wire)
